Destinations / Europe

Cologne is a great place to spend a couple days and you can do a lot on just $100. Here’s how.

 

Get your first meal of the day at Hommage Café on Friesenstrasse. The menu is varied and there is something to suit all tastes ($12). From here go for a walk around the Old Town and stop in at the cathedral to marvel at the collection of religious art, which draws pilgrims from around the world.

 

For lunch head down to the Rhine and get a table at Scampino Wein. Primarily a fish restaurant, this place also pairs its meals with great local wines if you fancy a drink ($25). In the afternoon, take a boat trip along the river, one of Europe’s biggest and most beautiful. A half-day trip should set you back around $20.

 

In the evening, try Petere’s Brauhaus for beers and food. This local brewery is incredibly traditional, and you can enjoy dishes such as pork chops and dumplings as you soak up the atmosphere ($25).

 

To carry on your evening, try Odonien. This cultural space has movie screenings, themed parties and concerts throughout the year, so check the listings to see what’s on (beers $4).

Leak-Proof Silicone Bottles for Liquids

It doesn’t matter which bottles you use for transporting liquids when you travel, just so long as they meet Transportation Security Administration regulations, right? Wrong. Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.
